Ilska och Jul.

Jag är så sjukt långsam på att ta mig igenom listan i A-Ö boktaggen. Så därför tänkte åter igen beta av två bokstäver i samma inlägg.

I - Ilska. En karaktär som gjorde dig frustrerad.

Till denna bokstav har jag valt Burned av Ellen Hopkins.
På baksidan av boken kan man läsa:

Pattyn Von Stratten is searching for the love she isn't getting from God or her family in this novel from #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Ellen Hopkins.
It all started with a dream. Just a typical fantasy, but for a girl raised in a religious--and abusive--family, a simple dream could be the first step toward eternal damnation. Now Pattyn Von Stratten has questions. Questions about God, and sex, and mostly love. Will she ever find it? Pattyn experiences the first stirrings of passion, but when her father catches her in a compromising position, events spiral out of control.
Pattyn is sent to live with an aunt in the wilds of rural Nevada to find salvation and redemption. What she finds instead is love and acceptance, and for the first time she feels worthy of both--until she realizes that her old demons will not let her go. Those demons lead Pattyn down a path to hell--not to the place she learned about in sacrament meetings, but to an existence every bit as horrifying.
In this gripping and masterful novel told in verse, Ellen Hopkins embarks on an emotional journey that ebbs and flows. From the highs of true love to the lows of loss and despair, Pattyn's story is utterly compelling. You won't want this story to end--but when it does, you can find out what's next for Pattyn in the sequel, "Smoke."

Oj, vad arg och frustrerad jag blev när jag läste den här boken. Alltså Pattyns pappa... MORR!!!!!

J - Jul. En bok som bör läsas när det snöar.

Till denna bokstav har jag valt Dash & Lilys book of dares av Rachel Cohn och David LevithanPå baksidan av boken kan man läsa:

A whirlwind romance from the"New York Times"bestselling authors of"Nick & Norah s Infinite Playlist"
" I ve left some clues for you."
"If you want them, turn the page."
"If you don t, put the book back on the shelf, please. "
16-year-old Lily has left a red notebook full of challenges on her favorite bookstore shelf, waiting for just the right guy to come along and accept its dares. Dash, in a bad mood during the holidays, happens to be the first guy to pick up the notebook and rise to its challenges.
What follows is a whirlwind romance as Dash and Lily trade dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations all across New York City. But can their in-person selves possibly connect as well as their notebook versions, or will their scavenger hunt end in a comic mismatch of disastrous proportions?
Co-written by Rachel Cohn (GINGERBREAD) and David Levithan, co-author of WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON with John Green (THE FAULT IN OUR STARS), DASH & LILY'S BOOK OF DARES isa love story that will have readers scouring bookstore shelves, looking and longing for a love (and a red notebook) of their own.

"From the Hardcover edition.""

Kanske inte en jättejulig bok egentligen, men den passar ändå otroligt bra att läsa under jullovet. Mysig läsning verkligen. Rekommenderas varmt!
